  •  I wrote a short piece a few weeks ago about the (10+ / 0-)

    opponent:

    Since that time she's commissioned a poll showing her far out in front:

    The poll done by Lake Research Partners showed Edwards at 52 percent and Ivey taking just 16 percent in the initial ballot test of the Democratic primary. Anne Arundel County Councilman Jamie Benoit, who is considering a bid, got 3 percent.

    The survey showed Edwards with higher name identification and higher favorability ratings than Ivey and Benoit. In Prince George’s County, which is the political base for both Edwards and Ivey, 83 percent of respondents had a favorable view of the Congresswoman while 60 percent said they viewed Ivey favorably.

    But this poll doesn't take the dynamics into account. Ivey is well known and will have the PGC machine and plenty of Washington lobbyists behind him.

    We need to rally around Donna NOW because Ivey is going to come on strong.

    I think I may even head down there to offer some in person help.
